Wailua Outrigger Canoe Club fills a much needed void for outdoor, on the water fitness focused sport activities in Kamloops.

Programs are offered for all levels. By joining the Wailua Outrigger you can participate anywhere from a recreational or novice level right up to international competition.

All equipment (outrigger canoes) are provided by the club & included in your membership fees. Paddles and lifejackets are available for use initially but members are encouraged to purchase their own when they are ready to paddle more regularly.  The fleet of canoes includes two and six person outrigger canoes.

If you would like to give it a try, contact us at


The paddling season runs from April to the end of September.
